Nonlinear Seismic Response of Special-Shaped Column Frame Structures
The spatial analysis model of special-shaped column frame structure is established in ANSYS. The nonlinear dynamic analysis is carried out for the structure by inputting ground motions in one direction. The seismic performance of the structure under rare seismic actions was examined and whether the structure achieved the predetermined seismic aims is evaluated. The results indicates that the structure which under the 8-degree zone designed according to the codes can achieve the predetermined seismic aims under the rarely occurred earthquake actions.
